Andrea Bommorito Running a Marathon – She is running the STL Rock and Roll Marathon on October 19th and she is raising fund for a really neat cause. She is trying to raise at least $2,000 for RANKEN JORDAN PEDIATRIC BRIDGE HOSPITAL. Let me read a little about Ranken – Ranken Jordan is the first pediatric bridge hospital helping kids with complex medical conditions and their families transition from the acute care hospital to home. Advances in medicine are saving more children’s lives; however, many of these children have severe illnesses or injuries. Without Ranken Jordan, these children are likely to have frequent ER and hospital re-admissions or must live in adult nursing homes. Our Care Beyond the Bedside model gets even the sickest children out of bed. Combining normal childhood activities with innovative medical care and rehabilitation creates a powerful path to recovery. By fostering strong partnerships with traditional acute care hospitals and by including the family in the care team we see improved outcomes and successful transitions home.
